From his research, our evolutionary geologist may have discovered that other geologists believe that Sedimentary Rocks A are 200 million years old and Sedimentary Rocks B are 30 million years old.
His geological cross-section may look something like Figure 2.In other words, the age should lie between 197.2 million years and 203.6 million years.However, this error is not the real error on the date.No matter what the radiometric date turned out to be, our geologist would always be able to ‘interpret’ it.
He would simply change his assumptions about the history of the rock to explain the result in a plausible way. Wasserburg, who received the 1986 Crafoord Prize in Geosciences, said, ‘There are no bad chronometers, only bad interpretations of them!
Clearly, Sedimentary Rocks A were deposited and deformed before the Volcanic Dyke intruded them.
